Forums  /  Batman series  /  Batman: Arkham Asylum  /  [Important] Intro Walk Vote

We've just opened up a vote regarding the timing for the Any% and 100% categories. Specifically, we're voting to either,
• Keep everything as is.
• Completely remove the Intro Walk segment from Any% and 100%, and adjust the start time to be consistent with other categories.
• Allow "race file" timing so runners can choose to start their runs after the intro walk.

More specific information in this video:

The vote is being held in the Arkham Speedrunning Discord and is open to anyone with a verified run in the Any% or the 100% category. If you're in the Discord, have a run in one of those categories, and do not see the voting channels, please send me a private message and I'll get that fixed up for you.

The vote will remain open until July 6th at 12pm EST (4pm GMT).


The vote has now closed, here were the results:
• Keep everything as is: 2 votes
• Remove Intro Walk: 4 votes
• Allow race file: 14 votes

As the results were overwhelmingly in favour of allowing race file, we have updated the Any% and 100% rules to allow this. For accurate timing with this method, you need a positive start time that should hit 6:47.77 when you gain control of Batman. If you're using the autosplitter with autostart (as of writing the autosplitter has not been released yet), your start time should be 6:40.70.
